Let me first thank you for considering helping us out!
After 4 previous albums as a bandleader, I have expanded my multiple-award winning “Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra” into a full 17-piece big band that has enabled me to further the emotional impact of my compositions and arrangements.
It’s incredibly expensive recording with a large formation, but without recording, how can I make my music have a life beyond live appearances, beyond local boundaries, and with the many people who aren't able to come hear us live?
Some of the MANY expenses we have to cover:
- 2 days at a large, top quality recording studio
- Fees for 17 outstanding musicians
- CD Cover Design
- Related expenses for the 2 days @ the studio for 20 people!
- Technical equipment
- Piano tuning
To this we should also add the endless hours spent composing the music, arranging it, printing it, taping the scores, the many hours rehearsing it, and performing it live until we felt it was perfect enough to commit to CD. It's a long process — often tedious or frustrating — but ALWAYS exciting!
While $8,000 may seem like a large amount, it actually covers only a fraction of the costs. Still, this Kickstarter project is a giant step — and an essential one — towards bringing the CD to life. If we can beat our goal, we’re even closer!

Once again many thanks and all the very best,
Risks and challenges
There are really no RISKS to you as a participant and supporter of this project. The band is booked, the studio is booked. THIS CD WILL BE DONE. Having already recorded 4 CDs, I'm all too aware that there will be glitches and delays, but I've never let them stop me before and certainly won't let them get in the way of this, my most exciting project yet.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
